Fill up with a hearty burrito in Victoria

Burritos are one of those foods that can be truly great when they're done right, and there are a number of places in Victoria that have things dialled in on the burrito front. From beans to chicken and everything in between, those tortilla bundles make the perfect meal-on-the-go. Check out this list of burrito hotspots to find your favourite.

Hernande'z

1
735 Yates St, Victoria, BC V8W 1L6

When you want a good burrito, you know a Latino restaurant is a good place to be, and Hernande'z doesn't disappoint. Try the Classic, stuffed with black beans, salsa and yellow rice, or go for the zucchini burrito, made with slow-cooked squash. As a bonus, both options are vegan.

Tacofino Restaurant

2
787 Fort St, Victoria, BC V8W 1G9

Despite the name, Tacofino also serves up some seriously good burritos. Starting from a now legendary food truck in Tofino, we're now lucky enough to have access to Tacofino's amazing food here without having to head across the island. Try the crispy chicken burrito, and ask for extra hot sauce to take it to the next level.

La Fiesta Cafe

3
G12-1001 Douglas St, Victoria, BC V8W 2C5

Whether you haven't eaten in a week, or you plan to share a meal with a friend or two, you'll discover the burritos at this café will certainly fill you up. Nearly everything on the menu serves at least two people, so go prepared to stuff yourself. The beef burrito is a tasty option, and guests can personalize their order with toppings from the salsa bar. There is limited seating, so plan to get your burrito to go.

La Taquisa

4
120-176 Wilson St, Victoria, BC V9A 7N6

This tiny little eatery is standing room only, but that's okay because the fantastic food will occupy all your attention. You might find the menu to be limited in actual items, but that's misleading as you can customize everything on the menu. Keep it vegetarian, or add some meat; pick your heat level, or keep it simple. You'll have the perfect burrito in no time.

Taco Justice League

5
1580 Cook St, Victoria, BC V8T 3N8

Taco Justice is actually a food truck that features a menu full of whimsical foods named after superheroes. While the tacos are the main event here, any taco filling can be turned into a burrito with the addition of a tortilla. If it's your first time, make sure to ask for the Green Bastard; don't forget to get up close and personal with that amazing deep-fried avocado.

Shine Cafe

6
1548 Fort St, Victoria, BC V8S 5J2

Burritos aren't always a lunch item. If you're hankering for a breakfast burrito, you'll find it here. The soft tortilla is filled with scrambled eggs, cheese and caramelized onions for a gourmet start off your day. You can also choose a side to go with your breakfast; hash browns are the perfect accompaniment.

Eating out can be a challenge when you’re gluten-free, unless you know where to go. Many of Ottawa’s cafes and restaurants offer gluten-free options and some stand out for doing them particularly well. Try these options for an enjoyable lunch with your friends or a romantic dinner with that special someone, all without having to settle for just a salad. [Image credit: iStock.com/Sarah Bossert]

If you're looking for the real deal, check out these yummy bagel shops.
Croissants are traditionally a breakfast food, but whether you stick to early morning munching or don't mind a little filled pastry for dessert at lunch, you'll find what you need in this city. From bakeries to cafes, Victoria offers you all the delectable pastries you could want, sometimes filled with other treats and sometimes on their own. Which do you prefer?
